Wow! This beer is so delicious. It’s bone dry and very floral. I had it on tap at the tasting room. They told me it was all European hops (it smells like Saaz). The Harlot has a wonderful Belgian-like flavor ad aroma but is happier and drier than almost all other Belgians I’ve had! I dinged the score because I wish the abv were lower since this could potentially be incredibly sessionable. Anyway, great stuff! MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:MetalNHopHead (2182) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Interweaving bubblegum, flowers, honey and citrus move towards a minty, herbal hop finish in this svelte and quenching Belgian-style Blond.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam covers the translucent golden. Beautiful even from the growler, eh?
-The mouthfeel is fluffy, airy and light.
-This is as easy drinking as you can imagine.
-At times, this feels like Dupont’s little expat cousin.
The Harlot was about just as tasty as The Debutante, the Societe Belgian Ale I enjoyed right alongside it. It had a similar flavor makeup too. The Harlot differentiates itself by having a gold color and more bright yeast esters which make the aroma more champagne-like. Flavor has a fat grain sweetness with yeasty notes of pepper, clove, tropical fruit zest, banana, and stone fruit. Rich, velvety feel. It drinks easy and with a great deal of complexity.

(En fût au Bottlecraft Liberty Station): Des malts semi-sucrés, un généreux bouquet d’épices et un tranchant verdoyant parfaitement adéquat. La finale poivre frais est superbe. BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
On tap at the brewery as well as a growler. Pours with a crystal clear golden yellow hued body with a lasting white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are very hoppy, herbal and spicy, grassy. Pretty clean yeast wise, low phenol and even less ester (some dried fruit). Low malt character. Overall pretty clean, a touch peppery, nearly pils like. Flavors are dry, earthy, and crisp. Medium hops (grassy, herbal). Nicely dry and quaffable, low bready malt character, some mineral notes. Clean yeast wise with some peppery phenol. Very drinkable, lively bubbles, crisp with a light body. Excellent beer.

The pour is clear pale yellow with a big white head. The nose is nice Belgian candy sugar, ginger, cloves, bready pastry and light honey. The taste is medium to low sweet with low bitter again with these guys, great balance. The texture is soft and creamy, the body is light and the finish is huge.
